About the Artists
Pianist LAURA BRUMBAUGH is on the faculty of the Savannah Voice Festival and serves as music director for the Centerstage Theatre Company’s summer productions in Boulder, Colorado. She has appeared at numerous festivals, including the Savannah Voice Festival, V.O.I.C.Experience-Sherrill Milnes and friends, Colorado College Summer Music Festival, and the Oberlin in Italy Festival. Her principal teachers include Margaret McDonald, Mutsumi Moteki, Monique Duphil, and James Howsmon.
Pianist AMANDA HOPSON, who began accompanying at the age of ten, has always been drawn to song literature. She has performed as master class accompanist for Elly Ameling, Adam Guettel, Jake Heggie and Nathan Gunn and has concertized with former King’s Singer vocalist Gabriel Crouch and famed soprano Lise Lindstrom. A review of Hopson’s performance on the Centaur Records release In My Memory: American Songs and Song Cycles praises her as “an equally fine musician, finding the character of the various accompaniments to perfection”.
Pianist TONY WEINSTEIN's principal teachers have included the eminent Luba Edlina-Dubinsky at Indiana University, Sedmara Rutstein and Haewon Song at Oberlin, and Derison Duarte at Cincinnati’s School for Creative and Performing Arts. In addition to his activities as a solo recitalist, he is an avid collaborative pianist and chamber music partner and performs in piano duo with his wife Karina Avanesian as well as piano-cello duo with Israeli cellist Yotam Baruch. He is currently involved, along with his sister, mezzo-soprano Yana Weinstein, in a project of performances, translations, and IPA transcriptions of the songs of Nicolai Medtner.
